the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with a call to end funding for public broadcasting, but here's the homework the left should have done before they and president obama began their reflective aattacks. they are $388 million in assets now. in merchandise sales alone, it brought in $45 million, five times what it received in government grants. that little cute sesame workshop turns out to be a moneymaker producing hundreds of millions of dollars. we take all of that up tonight with former george bush senior adviser carl rove, and as well, the unemployment rate falling to 7.8%, employers adding just 114,000 jobs. we're talking about that, and, yes, big bird too with the congressional budget office with douglas holtz-eakin. any -- new reports two suspects were arrested in the assassination to the ambassador to libya and three other americans. the man who broke the story that the obama administration knew it was a well-planned terrorist attack within 24 hours. daily beast writer, eli lake, joins us. governor romney campaigning today in virginia and florida ridi
, university of maryland -- north carolina i debated former vermont governor about the role of government. i hope i convince them but i don't know. when everything it is important we have an open debate. and traditionally that is what universities were supposed to be about. open debate. but college campuses often are not. two reasons. some have speech codes of what you cannot say. some are so liberal libertarians and conservatives are ostracized if they speak up. you had a student here? >> 2010. and robert studies free-speech and is with fire the foundation for individual rights and education. hadley, you were not very political. what happened? >> i have opinions but struggled what i believe, when to speak up, and when to be quiet. john: the because of friends ? >> there were a variety of students that were very mature but others who could be loudmouth that overshadows the culture with a small group to make a lot of noise it can be intimidating. congressmen tom 10 credo was invited but the speech never happened. john: he has positions on immigration that you disagree. i am not in alignment w
private individuals acting without government stores and will make the world a much better place. that is our show. i'm john stossel. good night. ♪ lou: good evening, everybody. the political and media world reverberating with a shock wave of the romney victory in last night's presidential debate in denver. dominating throughout, governor romney may well have turned the race for the white house, an entirely new and unexpected direction. president obama is tonight seemingly less the object of sympathy than the target of harsh criticism from left wing of luminaries upset with his lackluster and at times seemingly detached performance. the new york times today wrote, there are two more chances for the president to change tactics were to at least show up to the debate. president xanax just doesn't cut it. the "washington post" has written, if the obama campaign was worried about them is being overconfident going into the final stretch, tonight should allay those fears. chris matthews wind, where was obama tonight? well, his nbc colleague ed schultz admitted he was absolutely stunne
apparently shut it down. u.s. government is not required to mediate any disagreements between the two parties of the blue mountain libya partnership. saying it is currently satisfactory. there was no immediate response on the comment. a u.s. official is not denying reports the administration is laying the initial groundwork behind the attack as many as one dozen possible targets, ashley. ashley: thank you very much. let's get into this a little bit more, joining me now, retired united states army lieutenant colonel and former fox news middle east former senior advisor to governor romney and also author of the book "the coming revolution, struggling for freedom in the middle east." as we get more details on the events prior to the benghazi attacks it appears in the days, the weeks and the months prior there was plenty of warning signs. why is it these were the very least ignored? >> the main problem the administration has in libya is being unable to connect information from the various agencies. the fact there are militia on the ground proceeding as rebels. penetrated by al qaeda. because it w
government red tape is putting our country at a competitive disadvantage. plus, president obama gets a boost in the polls. the romney camp plays down expectations for next week's debate. some predictions. welcome to "the willis report." but, everybody. i'm lori rothman in for gerri willis perry the recovery is flat lining. the jobless rate has been about 8% for more than three years. but president obama is getting a well timed bump care of the labor department. bystanders showing more jobs have now been created and lost since the president took office. does this hurt mitt romney's argument? let's ask former republican governor mike huckabee of arkansas. it is wonderful to have you. >> great to be here. lori: what do you think of this jobs revision? it seems to be a nice boost for obama. >> if he is looking for anything, this is the lifeline he has. the fact is, of the jobs that have been created are jobs that are being created at a much lower pay scale than the jobs that people lost. some 30% lower. the fact that people have got a job does not necessarily mean they're better off. the key thi
protect its in my pocket. this is the government basically being a moderate. they get to do it legally and there is not all lot you can do to stop them. lori: remind me what tax reform should look like. >> we ought to be taxing consumption instead of productivity. the things that make an economy strong our work, savings, investment. those are things that make us stronger. we penalize the very things that are productive. we ought to be rewarding people are working and saving and investing because they're helping the economy to grow. that is why i am a fairfax -- fair tax supporter which would create a very different model. it is changing the foundation. lori: at the end of the day you need economic growth to be supportive of tax rates, and we are just come as you said, flat line at 1%. a revision, a downward revision. you know, hell are we going to get the overall growth rate higher? do we have to wait? obviously the election is so near, but are we just putting too much hope on to washington right now and not enough on good old fashion innovation and ingenuity? >> ingenuity and in this
, $16 trillion in debt, just means the expansion of government. poll after poll shows the american people and american voters are concerned about how big the federal government has been getting. i hear a lot of repeats in what they're asking for. president obama may not be implementing an environmental policy that is directly geared toward climate change, but look at the epa policies under president obama. they are geared toward addressing climate change in terms of regulations ocoal mines. in terms of immigration reform we have seen president obama work on the. >> translator: and we just saw his executive order that looked very similar to that piece of legislation. it's kind of a repeatable we have already seen and a little out of touch with people concerned about right now. neil: i wonder if it is part of the perceived victor's already claiming the spoils. i suppose it mitt romney were the runaway favorite, you are seizing onkeeping open those facilities and military contracts or jobs that could be imperiled as aesult of even automatic sequestration. so are we seeing something we
knows the government does not give you a direct amount of money. the government reimburses the doctors. if the government cuts the money that reimburses your doctors, that's how the government cuts medicare. few understand that. neil: at the very least, you think mitt romney might have arrested what had been some losing momentum in the swing states? >> mitt romney sounded like a president tonight, looked like a president. there's no substitute for that. neil: okay. congressman, great covering you over the last many months. >> good seeing you always. neil: a republican convention, this guy, you know, he was k like, hey, yao -- you're a republican now. very funny, very good speech. >> thank you. neil: we have dan debolt joining us now, might have a slightly different view than the congressman, the president's campaign national press secretary. ben, i think you heard what the congressman said that your guy lost tonight. >> you know, governor romney came into the debate to prosecute a case against the president. i think what was surprising was how much time mitt romney spent on the defensi
. the idea under your plan for future seniors would be that the federal government would write that senior a check, essentially and say "now, you can go buy a private insurance plan or you can buy medicare from the federal government"? >> is that essentially it? >> that's essentially it. people would have a choice of either traditional government- run fee-for-service medicare or a private plan which has to offer the same benefits. it can't be skinnyed down. >> pelley: will the check that comes from the government cover the cost of government-run medicare or the private health insurance? >> oh, yeah, people will have a choice of at least two plans where they have no additional out-of-pocket cost other than the traditional medicare formula so they've got to have at least a couple options where they don't have to put up more money. as to the government plan, as long as the government is able to keep its cost down, keep its overhead down it could well be one of the lowest costs, if not the lowest cost option. >> pelley: separately republican party said today that it has filed a complaint again
candidate obama veers off from his prepared remarks and accuses the u.s. government of short-changing hurricane katrina victims in new orleans. >> what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act mony? makes no sense. tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> greta: and now, former vice-presidential candidate, sarah palin, posting her response on facebook to the video. many of you have seen theuent 07 speech in which then senator obama suggested that because of racism, the federal government didn't waive the stafford act to assist new orleans after katrina. 10 days before senator obama gave this speech, the federal government did in fact waive the stafford act for new orleans. and to add insult to injury, barack obama was one of 14 senators who voted against the bill that, included the provision to give supplemental emergency assistance to new orleans of he was being dishonest and divisive, which we have seen far too often from him in the last four year
calling mitt romney the winner. trickle-down government. i wonder what lou will say about that. lori: he has been wanting him to step out and drop the gloves. a lot of people saying he did that last night. we will also talk about retail sales. find out about these winners and losers. what stores are stocking up to grab your dollar as well. hope you like corduroys. melissa: not so much. elizabeth macdonald is at the rock 'n roll hall of fame in cleveland. she will be talking with mayor frank jackson. she will also be talking to joe roman. cleveland is open for business and we are there. lori: baseball fans, probably not a shock here, the boston red sox have fired their manager, bobby valentine. they had 93 losses last season. they finished dead last. melissa: it was a tough little series here in new york. lori: no surprise, but, boy, you just get one. to prove yourself. melissa: let's head to the floor of the new york stock exchange. nicole: we are looking at a market that has had up arrows. the dow jones industrials are up. it has pulled back a little bit. the truth of the matter is, we
-- no one thinks israel is about to drop a bomb on tehran. so, the difference is this is a government with a record of supporting terror and look, no one talks about this very much, but if they had a nuclear weapon, they would be too dangerous. even if you believe they would never use it. if you believe they are sane and rational and their country, their civilization would be destroyed if they dropped a bomb on someone because everyone would know it and the retaliation would be incomprehensible. even if you believe that, too bad things will happen. a lot of their neighbors will get bombs. the more of these weapons you have hanging around, the more material you have, the more it will be stolen or sold or transferred to terrorists. that brings me to the second point, which is that iran has all these extensive contacts with terrorist groups and even if the government didn't sanction it, it wouldn't be that much trouble to get girl scout cookies worth of material -- it's enough to take out 20% to 25% of washington, d.c. just that little bit. so, the prospect of spreading, in a way, dirty
. the president supports the position on the creation of jobs and the government can't do everything but it has a responsibility. we have lost public sector jobs and we have laid off a lot of cops, firefighters and teachers. that is not the way to get the economy humming again. >> governor gilmorgilmore. aka governor romney, what is your solution? >> the economy is another serious problem. that is another way of talking about the plight of real people out there. after four years of stewardship, i can say that we are not moving in the right direction. we are picking up 100,000 jobs a month. you have to have 180,000 just to keep pace. we are not in a recovery. growth is under 2% while it has been 2.2. that is why we are sitting around after all these years. we have a specific plan. that plan are tax incentives in order to build up this economy and great growth. you can't do anything in this country until you get growth going again. until there are plans in place. talking about a tax reduction so that they can spend more money. so that they are xare competiti with over seas people. >> you heard go
,000 in health care and social services and another 10,000 in government employment. the private sector didn't show robust jobs growth in month. i want to underscore in the spirit of bipartisan agreement among economists, i can't accept that bls would cook numbers. the only thing worse you could do is say my mother didn't love me. >> we can't quantify that, can we? >> well said. >> jared, so the next time we meet for a jobs report friday it will be the friday before election day. anything that you can pull from trends that you see or from this report that gives us any hint what might be in the next jobs report? >> look, i think there's -- as i mentioned, i think there's a bit of momentum here, but i don't think we're seeing a job market that's anywhere near full employment. i expect us to continue to make slow progress. next month will probably be too late for people to change political perceptions about the job market by the time the number comes out. what the president can and will say is that the kind of report he got today supports his narrative we're moving in the right direction, perha
, population growth rather. we are seeing essentially 125,000 net jobs created since 2009. we have a government report coming out. unemployment may take up to 8.2%. that also includes government layoffs. this is a rearview number. we know the durable goods number was really bad. will we see, you know, worsening job numbers going forward? a lot of fuzziness in the data. how do you look for it? you have to look at the long to your trend. over two years. you have to see well above that. lori: one of the things to keep in mind, there is so much data out there and so many revisions, initial jobless claims, government reports on the job situation, they are always revising. lately, it has been to the negative. >> we did see good solid 18,000 jobs in the sector. that is where the economy is being structured these days. 10,000 jobs in construction. manufacturing, 4000 jobs. melissa: we were looking at 113, does that make that same life? i just want to remind everyone that is not a good number. >> finding the list that the government number includes state and local layoffs. i don't think that adp number
is running the government in the "chalk talk." the debate is tonight. who will win? a neutral observer will give us his view reince priebus with his expectations. music is a universal language. but when i was in an accident... i was worried the health care system spoke a language all its own with unitedhealthcare, i got help that fit my life. information on my phone. connection to doctors who get where i'm from. and tools to estimate what my care may cost. so i never missed a beat. we're more than 78,000 people looking out for more than 70 million americans. that's health in numbers. unitedhealthcare. lou: a lot of questions to be answered tonight talking with reince priebus obama lotus few differences rightama lotus few differences right away from the last debate. governor romney is taller than john mccain. actually 7 inches. mommy is 6-foot 2 inches tall senator mccain 517 inches and this time president obama is the shortest at 6-foot 1 inch and seven may be his lucky number he is also seven years younger than senator mccain but still 14 years older than obama first of all, street st

government and deregulating and what his recovery look like, month after month of 500, 600, 900,000, over a million jobs in 1983. dagen: back to the original point, mitt romney has to avoid trying to discredit this number. >> he will not do that. [talking over each other] >> ronny isn't going to discredit or do what jack welch did but what he is going to say is the obama recovery such as it is and various other economic indicators you talked about which indicate it is slowing down and stagnant and might be slipping into recession. that is the perception that the average american and average voters operating with. dagen: perfect to see you. nice discussion about the number of people working that called the unemployment rate to drop below the 8% mark. eight hundred seventy three thousand was the number in the household survey. our next guest has been talking about this that the economy is not as weak as you might think. scott minored is joining me now from santa monica. you called it but do you think this is in some way a 1 off? >> you said it amended ago. these numbers have a lot of volati
but would get a mandate to govern but would have a lot of senators down ticket that would win with him. that would make him a much stronger president. now i think the chanceof winning big have largely evaporated and it's likely we will have a much closer election now. the president obviously is still favored, but we have got a horse race. >> that's what makes these races so interesting, gloria, is how the narrative changes. it used to be months, from one month to the next. it is' now overnight. last week was 47%, now it's this, who knows what it will be next week when the vice president debates. one thing of david axelrod's response is that the president was basically taking the high road last night which almost makes it sound like the president's performance was a conscious tactical decision. do you buy that? >> i don't think they consciously decided to lose this debate and i don't think david axelrod is going to come out and say you know what, the president really blew it last night, although as jessica pointed out privately, certainly, there are obama allies who are happy to say tha
to have government serve the people? at a tactical level the economy is no good. on of macro level but at the micro level gasoline is $2 a gallon higher than three years ago. it takes $2,000 out of every household budget would wages are not going up or are stagnant in one town geneva illinois disposable income is down $6,000. how can a family support that? neil: you passionate the present numbers in a way people understand i do like mitt romney personally anybody who gets the nba and law degrees simultaneously is beyond me. he is not presenting that argument may be the media does not allow him to do so by what is the half to do to keep it simple? >> ronald reagan brought it down to the individual it is my microphone, our town, home, village, police department. the regulations when you create a system that should solve problems but don't people will take shortcuts bordering is as high as it has ever been. mitt romney better get off a high horse to come down to mainstream. people are terrified right now the president is leading a lot of the polls but i look at the trend if you argue
futures for america. he is saying that his choice is one where a smaller government would have facility private enterprise to grow the economy. the other, his version of president obama's view is that government is still in control of everything. the challenge for governor romney and the debate on wednesday is going to be fully articulate his vision for america's future to the largest audience of his political career. >> we need to give the american people the choice we are offering. that is what we are offering. we owe the country a very clear choice of a different future. we can have a dynamic growing economy that produces opportunity or we can have a stagnant opportunity that fosters dependency. >> romney campaign is looking for a solid performance, no knock outs which the governor has become famous for. he has been avoiding those since he tried to make the with governor perry. >> what is the word on the foreign policy message for romney? >> the governor has an op-ed in the "wall street journal" saying of president obama, by failing to maintain our new, president obama has heightened

and this is what a roaring romney sounded like. >> trickle down government is where the president will raise taxes on small business which kills jobs. i want to keep taxes down on small business so we can create jobs. this is about good jobs for the american people. >>neil: he swings, slams, scores, way too early to say if the swing states swinging back to the challenger but after last night, the critics say they probably stopped swinging away. larry said the race ain't over but he also is saying for the challenger it is an uphill fight. what do you make of last night and how this changes the dynamics? >> everyone, obviously, just about everyone, from right to left, says that romney won the debate. i gave you a full "a" and i give the president a "c" minus. there was a giant difference between their performance. everyone who was fair was impressed with how romney handled that from going to end. obama was stunned by how well romney was performing. he seemed almost to take a step back and tune out. >>neil: do you think he came in to it is on the clock, the president, to your point he didn't expect t
. still fell into bankruptcy, never paid back the government essentially stiffed the taxpayers. john thain came in afterwards and ran it. since then he is trying to rebuild it. doing a fairly decent job, but he can't really grow it because they're on this watch list. apparently he cannot sell it. all the banks he wanted to sell to, the u.s. banks, the big banks woul which you want to uss the ability to get in and run one of these institutions, they cannot write it because the bank regulators don't want these too big to fail banks to get even bigger and more systemically important and risky. that is one of the problems he has right now. right now he has a problem with selling it. citigroup cannot buy it right now. basically sold by regulators. that is the problem he has. and what kind of record this gentleman has. think about how he leads the market. back in 2008 i remember several times went out and said head of merrill lynch that did not need new capital. you don't actively say one thing when the opposite is real. it was funny, when h what he woy that they would raise more capital, sell t
the transition of the government. one of the other big messages we picked up over there, particularly in i understondia, emerging market central banks, they're very concerned about what the traditional bank of england, fed, ecb are doing with monetary policy. the fed is now at the extreme. we've tied our monetary policy to unemployment rates. the concern is that's going to bleed into inflation in their markets. you have half the world, the developed market, saying reflation, reflation, reflation. at the same time, the eu markets want to grow, but they don't want that inflation. so they're at odds. that's why you hear brazil's government telling you there's somewhat of a currency war going on. so, look, there's always something. going on. i mean, it's been a very volatile year. the market is up 33% over the last 12 months. there's been plenty to do. our view is this volatility is creating opportunity. you've got to be global. you've got to be across multiple assets. you have to be coordinated in terms of your approach. we're finding a lot of different things to do across both our liquid bus
there is a specific at that today list. one get the government out of the subsidies by. explain at that to me and how big of an impact would that make? >> huge impact. this is seat of the pants estimate between the tax subsidies and direct grants and subsidies we make to schemes like solyndra, totally that is about one-third of federal spending right there. that is not only money that being wasted, it is diverting capital from its highest and best use, to the whims of politicians. melissa: yeah. >> when you divert investment decisions from investors that make those decisions based upon the best economic return for the dollar and give those decisions instead to politicians, they make those decisions based on the highest political return for the dollar. that's a very different thing. melissa: your number two on the list i like very much. it is enact losers pay. basically lawyers have a huge influence on the political system. and we're seeing this right now with consumer protection. if you enact a rule for lawsuits that the loser has to pay the cost, that would make a huge difference. >> i mean, predato

jobs were add in july and august that government auditor didn't notice in the beginning. they revised their numbers. actually, july, august were stronger than expected to the tune of 86,000. 7.8% unemployment rate. what does that mean? the best since january 2009. when we dig within these numbers, carol, we can also see that some 418,000 people entered the workforce in the month. they are feeling a little more confident about things. either that or they've been out of the workforce for so long they've got to try to get in and get a job. you've got more people coming into the workforce. overall, 114,000 jobs created. they were in health care, transportation and government jobs. government jobs, three months in a row now. we've been seeing government layoffs for many, many, many months in a row. government jobs, transportation warehousing and we've been seeing -- everything else is pretty much flat in terms of job categories. the headline, carol, 7.8% is the unemployment rate. one more jobs report until the election. >> okay. so the political implications of this already coming in. in f
